of higher and higher coffee prices to consumers, brazil, which produces a third of the world's coffee, may turn prices around. a record crop there last year is being followed by another bumper crop. our cover story takes a look at what it means for coffee futures and retailers. brazil is expecting a record coffee crop again, just one year after its biggest harvest ever. "that would be a fabulous production." jack scoville, a commodities broker in chicago, says the bumper crop is the direct result of more coffee farms planted in brazil when a series of small crops drove prices high a couple of years ago. "it's because new trees and new areas are coming on." falling futures aren't great for investors, but may have coffee consumers buzzing. "if it's premium coffee, i'll buy a pound of it." "the average cup of coffee will be cheaper in the grocery. whether independent coffee shops drop their prices from $5.00 to $4.50 for a latte, i can't predict that."
